Install ReiserFS by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/sbin && make && make install && ln -sf reiserfsck /sbin/fsck.reiserfs && ln -sf mkreiserfs /sbin/mkfs.reiserfs
--prefix=/usr: This ensures that the manual pages are installed in the correct location while still installing the programs in /sbin as they should be.
--sbindir=/sbin: This ensures that the ReiserFS utilities are installed in /sbin as they should be.
ReiserFS contains debugreiserfs, mkreiserfs, reiserfsck, resize_reiserfs and unpack.
debugreiserfs can sometimes help to solve problems with ReiserFS file systems. If it is called without options, it prints the super block of any reiserfs file system found on the device.
reiserfstune is used for tuning the ReiserFS journal. WARNING: Don't use this utility without first reading the man page thoroughly.
